Saturday used books/ walk

From Girard Avenue Bridage
From 34th Street near the zoo.
Outside the Parkway Encampment.
I’ve been meaning to read more Wallace Stegner, having loved Big Rock Candy Mountain and Angle of Repose. John McPhee’s books I will always buy in good shape. Starting a unit on thinking like a critic, happy to see Wilson’s book, however battered; similarly, DFW anything, well I’ll buy, even if this one is a bit faded. $12.85.

Saturday (7.98)

Wish there was sound so you could hear just how loud the music was coming from that boat.
Good haul at the used bookstore. I buy Housekeeping any time I see it. Hard to resist a John McPhee in hardcover. And I’d not seen this O’Brian biography before — excited about that too.
Three new books on top thanks to a super generous gift card.
